Excellent for tune players

Comments about Hohner Marine Band 364 Soloist Diatonic Harmonica:

It's my favorite player for tunes and melodies among my blues harp types. You'll not want to try to wail some blues vamping on it but if you're a tune player then it's awesome. Good for folk, ethnics, gospel, old time...

It's also a really good starting point to learn chromatic because it's the same but without the sharping slide.

Horn players will find this harmonica easier to learn on than a standard Richter tuned 10-hole diatonic because it has a scale pattern easily recognizable to instrumentalists. blow, draw, blow, draw, blow, draw, draw, blow and you have do re mi fa sol la ti do. But it keeps the Richter tuned advantage of blowing any combination gives a I chord (C E G C E G... blow) Excellent for sax players wanting to add some Mississippi Saxophone sound.

It answer easily at all volumes through the entire range. It'd be a ten if it came in all twelve keys and perhaps in minors as well.
The big thing is the tuning of the scale. This is for playing melodies on and not wailing the blues. You know all those times you reached down in the bottom looking for an A so you could play a tune right but it wasn't there? This one takes care of that problem - it's solo-tuned with a full scale in every octave. Now you can play Danny Boy and Amazing Grace without jumping the octave.
It's a Marine Band so it's a wood comb and nails-in-wood construction with all of the problems that go with that traditional design. But, it also has all of the advantages such as the timbre of a wood comb too. There are 100-year-old MB's out there still playing great. If you play wet or plan to be in the rain then the wooden comb won't be something you like so much.
A touch pricier than the other Marine Band models but it's one of few solo-tuned full scale options out there short of a chromatic or an Asian-tuned tremolo.

Just what I was looking for!

By dstr4891

Comments about Hohner Marine Band 364 Soloist Diatonic Harmonica:

I am a novice player, so my collection of harps is still small. I have been practicing by playing pretty much any song that I can find the tabs for on the internet. Many gospel or classic pop songs are played in the higher range of notes, so this means that if you are using a C harp sometimes you are forced to produce what I call a "dog whistle" sound, where the notes are just too high and don't sound good. This harmonica allows you to play those higher C notes without bursting anybody's ear drums. The lower notes (holes 5 and below), are harder to play due to the size of the instrument - they are REALLY low sounding.

  • Leaks Air

Best Uses

  • Playing Tunesmelodies

Comments about Hohner Marine Band 364 Soloist Diatonic Harmonica:

This solo-tuned Marine Band plays easily. The reeds, from lowest to highest, sound easily. My only complaint is that the harp is leaky, especially in the lowest octave, requiring the player to use lots of air to get it to sound. The solo tuning is great for playing tunes, not great for play chords/playing blues.

By Neptune Mike

Comments about Hohner Marine Band 364 Soloist Diatonic Harmonica:

The Hohner 564/24 is a great guitar accompaniment harmonica.The quality is a little lacking however.The wood comb started to disintegrate right away and clogged the reeds.I love the playability but wish the quality was better.

    When buying harmonicas, it is always hit and miss. This time I hit cherry. Unless you tune a harp
    to your own perfection you get what you get. This one is Hohner at its best. This one will be one of my best.

      Comments about Hohner Marine Band 364 Soloist Diatonic Harmonica:

      I'm still trying it out. It doesn't have the responsiveness of diatonic harmonicas like the normal Marine Bands. I was hoping to use it in a holder, accompany with guitar and benefit from the fact that all the lower notes in the diatonic scale are there, but so far find the normal give better results, despite the missing notes.
